Hello everyone,

Chiang's whole career had been a struggle against the intervention in his well-ordered chain of events of that disturbing imperative which he called the mob.--- from "Red Star Over China" by Edgar Snow

What does "call" mean here?


Many many thanks.

"That disturbing imperative" probably had some real name, but HE called it "the mob".
